A Time of Lamentation

the storm comes

in blood

battering rams of

hate

breach the gates

Erebus Phobos and Eris

stalk the avenues

ash smeared lamia wait

in streetlight

the storm comes

in the splash of blood

in the opening of

man hole covers where

hungry ghosts congregate

Somewhere a piano plays deep in the night

a song of lamentation drifts

like cigar smoke

in starlight

among the

Sirens

call.
